EDUC 360 - Education and Emerging Technologies


This course explores ways in which instructional technologies not only support, but also shape processes of thinking, learning, teaching, experiencing and interpreting life in a digital age. Theoretical frameworks drawn from developmental psychology, cognitive science, media studies, curriculum and instructional design, and varied philosophical perspectives on education are used to assess the instructional potential of major existent (e.g. presentation, conceptual mapping, multi-media authoring, electronic portfolio, and course management applications) and emerging technologies (e.g. Wiki’s, research and knowledge construction, social networking applications). Multi-dimensional, broadly inclusive, collaborative and constructivist approaches to teaching and learning are emphasized. Spring semester. (4 Credits)
